St George's, Grenada
Our personal guide, Davidson, courteous, friendly and informative, drove my wife and I to the Rainforest and took us through a section which involved a fairly long and steepish descent to a large and impressive waterfall where a local young man entertained us by diving from the top into the pool below. At this stage we were virtually on our own. As we returned we came across a tour from a cruise ship, possibly 100+ people descending the same (narrow) path (which was wet and slippery), apart from slowing us up, it was not a major problem. However, the viewing area by the waterfall was not that large, so we were glad we got away before this large number of people arrived, it would have been very crowded! The forest itself was attractive and Davidson pointed out one or two features of interest and was always willing to answer questions. A drink was provided on return to our transport. An enjoyable half day tour, a little challenging due to the wet ground but you can't expect anything else in a Rainforest! It would be worth trying to find out if large (cruise) parties are taking this trip when you intend to go to avoid a very crowded excursion!
Castries, Saint Lucia
A very enjoyable experience, good fun and a great way to see the Rainforest. The set up is very well organised, the guides are very entertaining and informative but always curteous and professional. The ziplining is very safe, nothing to be scared of! The views from the aerial tram are wonderful. A special mention to Jesse and Rosie who looked after us so well.
A good (but fairly hectic) day out. They cram a lot into the morning, frequently stopping for various sights, views etc. before visiting the Botanic Gardens (beautiful) and Sulphur Springs at the volcano (a bit pongy but very interesting.) After lunch, by contrast, there is a leisurely sail back up the coast including a stop to swim off a small sandy cove. Our guide Sylvia, was a mine of information telling us lots about all things St. Lucian. A great way to see a lot of the Island and its major sights in one day.
Part of the Aerial Tram and Zipline set up. Well organised, and our knowledgable guide Terry told us a lot about the Rainforest. The walk took about 3 hours in total and altogether climbs about 800 feet. Consequently there are quite a lot of fairly steep stepped sections, so a bit more strenuous than we were expecting. However there is no forcing of the pace and there were frequent stops.
